Hello. The Spencer Dobcast has been on hiatus for a while for several reasons. However, Here is a new episode. It's just me, your host, Spencer Dobson, talking about stuff thats happening right now. I hope you like it.
Dwight York has been a friend of mine for years. He is a true road dog and a master of the one liner. Dwight has published a couple of collections of his one liners on the Stand Up! Records imprint: "More from the Vile File" He also has a disk on Stand Up! called Quickies. Dwight has the unique distinction of being the only comic to play the Sturgis Motor Cycle Rally for 6, going on 7 years. I had the pleasure of working with Dwight recently and he was gracious enough to sit down and chat about one liners, bikers and comedy in general. If you want to hook up with Dwight you can find him at dwightyork.com. Thanks for listening.
Jeff Gerbino has been doing stand up for over 30 years. The "business" of Stand Up Comedy did not exist in the Midwest when Jeff first took the Stage. His time in the business has brought him into the spheres of some of the greatest names in the business and after all this time, he can still make the Crowd howl. Enjoy.
Mike O'Keefe is Detroit Comic. He's very funny. We talked about Kiss, Wrestling, Real estate, Comedy clubs, Being Irish and a bunch of other stuff, that I'm sure you will find amazing. Check out Mike's album "Where ever they'll have me" or visit his website: themikeokeefe.com. Also I spent 15 mintues trying to get that sideway's picture to be not sideways and It wouldn't have it, so that's what I'm stuck with. Any way, Mike is a riot, enjoy the show.
This week Maggie Faris and I go down an internet wormhole. I've known Maggie since the 90's, she's always been a great comic and now she is doing some really great things on the internet as well. Her website extrememaggie.com allows you to, among other things, bid cash money to be Maggies #1 fan for the year. Maggie and I talk about the web, A Christmas Story and comedy. Enjoy.
The Logistics of this format should seem pretty clear as you listen to the show.
This Week I Traveled to the Brainerd International Raceway. I did this to see a Kiss Tribute band Called Kissology. As it turns out, they where playing the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. Apparently it's a pretty big event in the drag racing world. There was a sea of winnebago's and army of golf carts and mini bikes, I have never seen that many people in that small a space with that many Golf carts. But the vibe was good, the people where friendly. I assume the races where, fun I never got the to the track.
Hello. I put up another podcast. I know, it's huge news, but try to keep it together. The picture to is Tad KublerOf The Hold Steady. I'm a fan of the band and had the good fortune of seeing them in Omaha. I'm not showing you this picture to give you the impression that we're best friends, I'm showing you this photo so that to back up the part of the podcast where I explain that I look like a 4 necked bag of dookie on the podcast. So, now you have a frame of reference.
